Sustainability Strong Communities

Strong Communities

We are committed to enhancing the communities where we operate by sharing our time, research and resources and amplifying the healthcare objectives of our partners. Giving back to our communities is ingrained in who we are and we align our community investment efforts to those of our tenants.

Keystone Trust

Vital remains committed to the ongoing relationship with Keystone Trust. As a Keystone Scholarship Partner, we provide scholarship support, mentoring and ongoing industry guidance to a student from the University of Auckland.

Keystone Trust supports young people who have a passion for the construction and property industry by providing financial and networking support within tertiary study. With over 200 alumni from the programme there is a strong network to aid students along their journey.

Charlotte Simpson has been awarded the 2024 Keystone Vital Healthcare Property Trust Scholarship. Charlotte is enrolled at the University of Auckland and is studying Bachelor of Property & Bachelor of Commerce conjoint degrees. Vital will support Charlotte this year in her studies both financially and as well as providing sector introductions, industry connectivity, career guidance and practical work experience.

International days

Vital acknowledges and celebrates a variety of International Days.

In 2023, the theme for World Health Day was “Health For All”. In alignment with this, all Australia and New Zealand offices participating in an organised lunch with nourishing and wholesome foods. To honour the theme we made donations to food banks in our office locations.

The New Zealand team participated in Pink Shirt Day, a campaign to stop bullying and promote kindness and inclusiveness.

A new addition this year saw the New Zealand office come together in celebration and exploration of Matariki, a time to gather with whānau and friends to reflect on the past and plan for the future. We used a Māori owned and operated food provider for our session.

Northwest supports five key international days including

  • International Women’s Day
  • World Health Day
  • Earth Day
  • World Mental Health Day
  • Human Rights Day
  • Starship Foundation

    Vital has joined the Starship Foundation as a corporate partner to help support improved healthcare outcomes of children across New Zealand and are looking forward to making a positive impact through our contribution.

    Starship is New Zealand’s national children’s hospital providing acute and chronic care for children from across the country.

  • Volunteering

    Northwest promotes an employee volunteer programme by providing two days per year of paid time off (for full time employees) to further support the communities we serve. We are committed to this policy at a corporate level and are also endorsing team involvement in group volunteering events throughout the year.
